Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The SmallBall Nation of Anti-Goatsack is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Billy with a fair hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, prohibition of alcohol, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 28.087 billion Anti-Goatsackians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The minute, liberal, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Keely. Income tax is unheard of.

The all-consuming Anti-Goatsackian economy, worth a remarkable 3,817 trillion Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Book Publishing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Furniture Restoration. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 135,910 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

The Finance Ministry posts hourly updates on where taxpayer money is spent, elevator music has been replaced by thrash metal played at maximum volume, the endangered saltwater humpback Beaner is only seen in captivity programs, and the nation's leading climatologists are investigating animal flatulence in efforts to reduce methane emissions. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Anti-Goatsack's national animal is the Beaner, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Anti-Goatsack is ranked 15,204th in the world and 480th in Osiris for Nudest, with 215 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
